That would be covering all building with solar collectors on all sides other than north. I find it idiotic that all schools aren't mandated to have their roofs covered with solar collectors. Think about it. You have large buildings with expansive roofs that are not even in use in the summer so virtually all the energy could be sold to the local Electrical Utility. That's 3 months of electricity and that could be used to pay the huge bills these schools accumulate.
